The Sunday Salon: The Mother’s Day Edition

You know how I said that The Hub was always giving me the evil eye over the amount of reading I do?

I forgive him.

Happy Mother’s Day! I am playing with my new toy and we’ll be firing up the BBQ later. Hope you all have a lovely day.

The Sunday Salon: Catching Up…Slowly

The Sunday Salon

My reading list is out of control. I posted about it here. In an attempt to catch-up, I have been a reading fool. Reading requires time, so this post is going to be brief and actually, it will just be a list of random things. Because to be honest, random is all I can muster right now.

  1. I am reading Let the Great World Spin and it’s not at all what I thought it was (and I mean that in a good way).
  2. Kids are expensive. Every time I go out with them, I end up shelling out cash. What’s the solution though? To become a hermit?
  3. I just saw The Blind Side and I cried a few times. It’s been awhile since I’ve cried during a movie. It felt good.
  4. My son fits into adult clothes from H&M now. Cool.
  5. I will be starting two books this week (Legend of a Suicide and The Passage).
  6. My book club meets this Thursday. We are discussing First They Killed My Father, which I reviewed here. I haven’t been able to go to book club for a couple of months so it will be nice to see everyone. Hopefully it will be a good discussion.
  7. The Nook is looking more appealing to me now since its recent upgrade.
  8. Employers should allow pajamas in the workplace.
  9. Read-alongs are a lot of fun.
  10. Is it Friday yet?

Off to read more of Let The Great World Spin.
